    New release Black & Gold GA100GBX-1A9 melds legibility with style

    Positive display variants are few and far between in the quite extensive GA100 lineup. Off the top of my head, I can only recall 3 of them, none of which I'm too attracted to. So, I was delighted to see this cool, understated yet still eye-catching black and gold version available for JDM preorder at the beginning of the month.

    Released in Japan and shipped to me just over a week ago on Friday, September 15, the package had to sit around for a coupla days before I could complete this unboxing shoot a few hours ago today, Sunday the 24th.

    Looks nice! The colours are really good on this one

    Now - I don't want to potentially spoil your happiness, but is that a scuff on the bezel at 3 o'clock?

    ^Don't worry, be happy, kid. It's nearly invisible in real-life.

    You could say that again, grinta! I'm really liking this one a lot. The black and gold treatment is calmly elegant and not blingy at all. The gold of the hands, by turns, blacks out and "dissolves" into the dial; becomes a matte bronze or looks like its true shiny gold. All the while, the white tips in consort with the blueish white of the markers see to it that you quickly get the time at a glance, regardless of the lighting conditions. And then there're the positive displays, which are an eye-opener after having to have dealt with the negative ones on my other two GA100s for so long.
